Okay, I have been a little busy lately and haven't blogged at all. Sorry. I think it might change because we have some big changes I don't want to forget about. The first one is...WE ARE MOVING! Actually the packers are packing up my house as I type. If your going to move I highly recommend having movers pack and move you. Then you can just sit back and blog.

A few months ago Drew was feeling a little overwhelmed with work and started looking for a new job. He was offered a job and we were excited and then we prayed about it and didn't feel like the timing was right. So we decided to stick around and enjoy New York. We really love everything about it, except Drew's hours. We love our friends, our house, living so close to the City and everything else that comes with it. At the end of December, Drew got a call, flew out and interviewed, fell in love with AZ and came home and told me all about it. The next month we both flew out to Arizona and seriously started thinking about moving. Then the offer came and we were sold.

It's been a crazy few weeks.
-We put our house on the market, received a few offers, will hopefully sign a contract in the next few days and then close.
-I've tried to keep up with my school work. (I'm really bad at blogging - I started an online bachelor's program with BYUI last fall.)
-Played as much as possible with friends.
-Prepared for a trip out to Vegas for my brother's wedding. Which is this weekend! I can't believe he is getting married!
-Looked for a home in Arizona. Hopefully by this weekend we will have something lined up.
-and everything else that we normally do.

So that's why I haven't blogged much. Hopefully I won't be as busy in Arizona. Anyone want to come visit? I'm sure we will have a guest room.

Congrats on making the exodus from New York! Welcome to true suburbia! :)
PS. Aren't movers great? We are never moving again unless someone else does the packing.

I'm so excited you'll be so close to us now. It's only like a 6 or 7 hour drive. Easy! Maline and I missed you this last weekend. Girls weekend is needed badly:) Miss you tons! Congrats to Drew for getting a great job with a better life style. Happy for you guys. Also, you are always welcome to come see us. Dland would be crazy fun with all the kids.

WOW, AZ!! That's crazy but great adventure! I'm sad that you won't be in NY when we visit, it is on my list of to-do's someday! Which bro is getting married? Mark? Keep us updated, I know how busy things get with moving and a family so I'll be patient!

Nancy said...

Bree said...

Um.... how could you do this to me? I am finally coming closer to you and you move the furthest away you possibly could. I really am excited for you. I would pick the warm over the cold any day. I just hope one day we will get to hang out!
